#MicroblogMondays: Drawing a blank

Today is rare day for me. I turned the page in my datebook & realized I was looking at a blank space. Like, totally, entirely blank. No appointments or places that I absolutely have to be (a lot fewer of those since I lost my job) -- but also no birthdays or anniversaries to note, no bills to be paid, no reminders about whether they're picking up yard waste (raked leaves) as well as recycling & garbage, no TV programs I've flagged to watch. Nothing. Nada.

It's not very often that this happens. The next completely, totally blank date on my calendar is Dec. 29th. (Although I'm betting there will be a few more of them in 2015, now that I am no longer working.) 

I suppose some people might find that blankness terrifying. I find it liberating. :)

  1. Wow. I don't know what I'd do with a day like that. Probably drive around ... maybe take a long walk by the river. ;)

  4. I wish today was a blank day for me! It's pouring with rain, hubby took the car and I still have to go out twice (one to pick up my son from school - with my other son in tow, but without the stroller, because it broke down yesterday..., the other for a meeting)...
    Hope you enjoyed your freedom!

  5. Now that I no longer have such days, and actually need a calendar to keep track of everything, I so miss such blank days. :-) Make the most of it.

  6. Loving the sound of the blank day, especially considering the fact that you have things to do until the end of December.

  8. That happens to me every so often -- more often than you! But the calendar on the phone slides the date closed, almost as if to say, "just skip it." No way. Those are the nicest days.

  9. Today's a blank day. I have more of these now than I need. But I needed it today - exhausted after a busy few weeks and lack of sleep. Still feel half asleep now and it's one minute to the weekend.
